Wigs 4 Kids and Terrence Davidson

7 Mar

I love attending charities with great causes whether it is in the arts or providing services for anyone in need like the Wigs 4 Kids fashion show I just attended in honor of the Celebrity Wig Master: Terrence Davidson the man behind Nicki Minaj’s wigs.

Wigs 4 Kids provides services and support to children who are in need of hair replacement due to health challenges such as cancer and Terrence Davidson was nice enough to contribute wigs to some of these children.

To see these children smile and glow through this opportunity was such an eye waking experience I can’t imagine what it would be like to be in their shoes. It is not only about hair it also gives them the opportunity to be socially accepted by their peers and builds up their self-esteem as they journey through their health challenges, and thanks to Terrence these children have the opportunity to have a sense of belonging.

What a rewarding feeling Terrence must have fault when he saw the children wearing his wigs. I have to applaud Terrence for being part of this wonderful organization and for flying to the metro Detroit area to meet the children in my little home town St. Clair Shores, MI which I am sure they will never forget. Experiences like this help me realize how fortunate I am to have my health which nothing in the world could make up for and that I need to be doing more to make a difference which is why I will be getting together with a small group of women this evening and putting together Easter baskets for the homeless. We were raised to contribute our gifts as our mother has taught catechism for over twenty years, and say what you will about the Catholic church, for all we know is that our mother contributes from the goodness of heart, and has impacted many children. Any little act of service to bring a smile to the unfortunate also brings a smile to my face, as my sister and I say “it is the little things that we consider the true jewels of life.”

Thank you all for letting me share my humbling experience with you.

Until next time,
Monica
